    Review:

    I have only seen the movies and have not seen the movie that this book represents, with that said I find this story to be an excellent addition to this series. I have been watching the movies since they came out and even though clearly it’s about zombies, it’s so much more than that. I have never seen or played the game. I loved how we get to see the softness in Alice and her wondering about maybe having a family and children or if she even could, that doesn’t come across very well in the movies. So that was a really nice new touch for me.

    Now, a couple of sentences in the book sparked some incredible conversations. First, let me give some background. I used to be a Sign Language Interpreter, my son and his wife are both State Certified Interpreters and my youngest daughter who just graduated High School is going to college to be an Interpreter. My middle son is deaf. So our family knows about deafness and Sign Language. Here are the sentences that had not only us talking but others as well.

    “It’s going to be okay,” Alice signed back. It was easier to lie when no one could hear your voice.”

    I had a strong reaction to those sentence since Sign Language is not just your hands talking, there are other parameters of signing, body language and facial expressions etc… ,so I asked around. We discovered there was no yes or no depending on how it was looked at. What we did figure out was if you were a good liar, hearing or deaf then you would be able to pull it off. This would be an excellent research project in the real world, what are the tells of a deaf or signing person be, are they different than for hearing people who voice? It brought up so many questions. Thank you!

    Back to the story, action packed as are all the movies. I think what really makes this book great was not only seeing inside Alice a bit more, but also, seeing Jill and how she catches glimpses of who she was. I would have liked to see more of what happens to Dori, Judy, Tom and the rest of the gang. Maybe in the next book. I enjoyed all the new creepy crawlies and flying monsters. The lickers were described wonderfully, yuck. The story line about the clones brought to mind, howthings could go really wrong and abusive. Of course, the book takes it to the max, but that makes a person think. How would we treat clones? Would we consider them expendable in the same ways at some point?

    I was reading this story for fun and entertainment and it brought up such an interesting connection to real life for me had me giving it 5 stars, over all it’s a great story to the series. It’s action packed with great questions to ask ourselves throughout the story. Even if you don’t know the movies this book gives enough background to read alone. I highly recommend this book for young adults to anyone who enjoys the sci-fi/horror genres.
